Your profitable tune: Mark Knopfler on vision and imagination

For today’s profitable quote, I suggest that you listen to a tune by one of my favorite artists, Mark Knopfler (here with James Taylor) with “Sailing to Philadelphia”.

The words describe the mindset of Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon, two English surveyors who established the border between Pennsylvania and Maryland, Delaware and Virginia in the 1760s. (from Wikipedia)

Sit back, put on the headphones, close your eyes and imagine yourself as a young man escaping the constraints of 18th century England to make a new life in an unfamiliar and uncharted land…

The lyrics (and the guitars) give me the chills every time I listen to them…

Have a great day!
